Upgrade your grid analysers from your office chair

The grid analyser CVM Mini E3 is found in numerous substations throughout Norway. Now, the instrument’s software has been updated – and SafeBase has created a function that lets you install the update without leaving the office.

The CVM Mini E3 from Micro Matic Norge is one of Norway’s most popular grid analysers, and the software update affects essentially all grid companies.

— Our customers are delighted that the instrument can be remotely updated, for increased functionality, says Frode Johansen, key account manager at SafeBase.

Avoid travelling to the substation

SafeBase develops and delivers the top system SafeMon, which contains a broad application portfolio for the energy and telecom industry – including its own unique applications, Substation Monitoring and Control System and Smart Meter Insight.

Grid companies that use SafeMon can now easily and remotely update the CVM Mini E3-grid analyser from Micro Matic, directly in SafeMon.

— The software update is available to everyone. However, grid companies that don’t use SafeMon, or make similar solutions themselves, must travel to the substation to update the grid analyser manually, says André Gulliksen in Micro Matic.

“Our customers are delighted that the instrument can be remotely updated, for increased functionality”, says Frode Johansen.

“The software update is available to everyone. However, grid companies that don’t use SafeMon, or make similar solutions themselves, must travel to the substation to update the grid analyser manually”, says André Gulliksen in Micro Matic.

Flexible against programming errors

CVM Mini E3 supports two-way communication. This means companies like SafeBase can create software that remotely controls the instrument – including the opportunity to update the software from the office chair.

— For grid companies, the two-way communication adds a layer of security – and comfort. If the grid analyser was misprogrammed during installation, the mistake can be rectified from the office – without making another trip to the substation, says Gulliksen, who continues:

— You get an easy-to-use solution, that minimizes the costs of travelling to substitute hardware, if there’s an error in the software.

Improved functionality

The CVM Mini E3 software update improves functionality in how the instrument displays data.

—  Those who use the data from the grid analyser daily welcomes this update. In addition, that our customers don’t need to upgrade their instruments on-site, is greatly appreciated, concludes Johansen.
